Summary, etc.:
"A lighthearted but informative look at chance discoveries made by ordinary people, of artifacts (and treasures) from the past. Many of these discoveries have led to leaps in our knowledge of history and science. Each short chapter will begin with a dramatic story of discovery, followed by the significance of the artifact that was discovered, followed by a look into the history of the civilization/era from which the artifact originates. The stories will show readers that potentially anyone-construction workers, farmers, casual passers-by, and even kids-can make discoveries like these"-- Provided by publisher.
